Reusable Shopping Bags

I've been putting off buying any cloth shopping bags thinking I'd just
make some, but today I went ahead and bought a couple. I loved being
able to fit everything into two easy to carry bags rather than juggling
5 or more plastic bags and my almost two year old and not having to
worry about a bag breaking on me.

I
know I'm going to need at least one or two more for bigger shopping
trips. I'd like to make them, but I was also wondering if most of the
bags they sell at grocery stores and discount stores are all about the
same, or if any are better than the others.

Has anyone here used
a few different ones that they'd like to share opinions on? What do you
look for in a good shopping bag? What makes one more convenient than
another, and is there anything you'd change to make them better?

Also, anyone know of stores that offer discounts for bringing your own bags?
